I've been so excited about Georgie's first Halloween. We didn't meet her until December so we missed Halloween last year. I got her an uber cute pair of spooky overalls and a matching hairbow and went in search of a pumpkin patch to take her to. There was a neat one we used to go to when the boys were small but, alas, they built houses there and now its gone. We thought we would try the Irvine Regional Park. It was GREAT! They had a nice pumpkin patch, lots of photo stands, a straw bale maze, a not so scary haunted house, and a pony ride. And because all of Georgie's destinations require it, a choo choo!
It was a long day and Georgie had so much fun!!! She was the star of the pumpkin patch in her little overalls. Cute, cute, cute!! Georgie started out kind of whiney and clingy. I'm not really sure why but she didn't seem to have a lot of interest in the pumpkins and if she got even five feet away from me, she'd start whining and grab my leg. Ugh. So, we pressed on and rode the train andthe ponies, which she loved!! There's also a really nice little zoo inside the park with some bears, a coyote, several owls, and a wonderful petting zoo with lots of nice, calm goats for Georgie to pet and brush. Later in the day, when she was tired and a little silly, we went back to the pumpkins and then, she really liked them and had lots of fun!!! She's such a fickle little pickle my Baby G.

In the straw bale maze. The bird is fake but G liked to pretend it was biting her! Too funny!
G really liked the giant pumpkin!
She liked scratching the pumpkin which I really shouldn't have let her do. But on our first attempt at the pumpkin patch it was nice that something made her happy.
Georgie at the petting zoo. The goats were so nice. They had a no feeding rule which seemed to cut down on them attacking the kids.
Pumpkins, part 2: look how much happier she is!
